Delay In Issuance of Visa
This is really disheartening. I applied for a Visa to Cape Town since 5th of December 2018. Am supposed to travel on Monday. Up till now no information yet from the Embassy. This system is absolutely WRONG!

passport submitted since december 7th,2018 and no word from South african embassy till now
Till now I am yet to get a feedback from the south african embassy and my International passport is still in their custody which is causing a serious challenge for me to write an International exam at the British Council scheduled for January 14,2019.

i have no idea what to do.

I applied for a withdrawal but was told that it will take more than 48 hours as they claimed initially.
i cannot understand.

Visa application
Intending to travel to cape town for the holiday, submitted the application since the 4th of this month and holiday is almost here, still not passport or visa, I think it's wrong to hold unto someone's passport for that long esp during a holiday ehen people would be doing a lot of traveling, if u can't give a visa, don't ppls time and money, capetown is not the only tourist place there is.

Visa Delay
Good day,

My name is Nimmyel Enoch Micheal, I work with Medecins Sans Frontieres - Spain as a Medical Doctor. I apply for a Visa through VFS in Abuja, I contacted them and they said the process is still ongoing in your Embassy.
Please my plea is that the purpose of apply for the Visa is for a training that my organisation is sending me to in your country and this training start on the 19th of November (Next week Monday). Please I plead for a speedy action on my Visa to be out this week from your embassy to enable me attend this training. I am based in Yobe state of Nigeria and I need ample time to fly to Abuja for onward onbounding to S.A

My email address is and on 08021313402
